I don’t know about you guys, but Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. This year is definitely no different–except that my oldest is (sort of) old enough to help out in the kitchen.
Her favorite thing to make by far is stuff that comes out of boxes…whether it’s mac and cheese or brownies, she likes it simple. She’s only three, so I feel like it’s pretty understandable.
That’s why I generally try and find recipes that will be pretty easy for her to help me with.

Candy Cane Oreo Fudge
The recipe for this Candy Cane Oreo fudge was fairly easy. I don’t go out of my way to make recipes that are difficult, as cooking has NEVER been my strong suite.
That’s why I loved this peppermint Oreo fudge recipe…it was super quick and easy to make. I will be honest–it took us a couple of tries to get the chocolate right. Once we did it was a piece of cake.
Crushing up the Oreo’s and Candy Canes was Monkey’s favorite part. We personally left our chunks a little bigger because that’s how we like it.
I am certainly NOT an expert cook, and so I don’t actually own my own double boiler. This is the method a family member of mine uses (and what’s typically recommended.
We prefer to use the microwave to melt the chocolate. It took a couple of tries before we found the chocolate’s “sweet spot”, but once we did it seemed much more efficient.
I would recommend picking up a candy thermometer if you can. I am NO expert on what is the best temperature for fudge, but I found this article helpful.

- 2 C white chocolate chips
- 1 C Ghirardelli peppermint bark white chocolate chips
- 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 20 Peppermint bark Oreo cookies, chopped. Set aside 1/2 C for topping
- 1 C crushed candy canes, set aside 1/4 C for topping
- Line an 8 X 8 baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Using a double boiler, combine both chocolate chips and condensed milk and mix until smooth. Alternatively, you can also melt the chocolate chips and condensed milk on the stove or in the microwave. If you choose to do use this route, heat for 1-2 minutes at a time, as white chocolate burns easily!
- Mix in the Oreos and 3/4 C crushed candy canes
- Pour fudge into prepared pan
- Sprinkle remaining chopped Oreos and crushed candy canes
- Allow to harden overnight before cutting into 1 inch squares.
